Summary:  Everything about this cruise is wrong: Service - the worst I have experienced - it just didn’t exist. Food level below average fast food. And same every day. Specialty restaurants - that you have to pay for, have no selection at all. Restaurants close early and after 9 even to get water you have to go to deck 4, everything else is closed. Burger place - usually free on all ships, at the pool side - charges ridiculous amount. Entertainment - 1 show is decent but no organization - people just walking in the theater and without regard of everyone trying to watch the show and no one from staff cares or willing to help. I can go on and on about how bad this cruise was. Including huge overcharge for itself and anything on the ship. We have cruised about 25 times - this one is by far the worst one.

Summary:  We sailed from New Jersey on the Anthem on 3 March 2016 and tasted Jamaica, Hondrous, Mexico, Grand Cayman island and Haiti. We had a balcony room. I must just say - it was absolutely fantastic! The ship is out of this world. It has so many things to do and try. I loved the surfing, the rip cord ifly, rollarskating, bumper cars, rock climbing - everything - too much to mention. The food was excellent - would have enjoyed a few more Caribbean dishes though. The staff were excellent - always polite and friendly. The shows were good - not Broadway standards but watchable and enjoyable. We both had a wonderful time. I would thoroughly recommend this ship for all ages as there is so much to do and of course you have the choice to do nothing at all. The jacuzzis and swimming pools were just absolute bliss. They have thought of everything. Just fantastic

Summary:  Royal Caribbean are loosing their WOW factor with this Anthem class ship,with more negatives than positives. The Two 70 is a great success with some excellent shows such as Spectra, but we found ourselves looking for things to do too often. Their resident band Rock the Boat were a great find for us in the Music Hall. We have travelled with Royal Caribbean on many of their ships and we have always had plenty to do like watching ice or fruit sculpturing, the shops even seemed to have less to offer being targeted at the extreme rich rather than the average cruiser. We found the lack of formal nights a big disappointment, the chefs parade is always a great feature but not on this class of ship and when we did eat in one of the restaurants the menu did not particularly excite us as it has on previous ships. The Chic Restaurant served up cold stakes both times we ate in there, but Wonderland was a fantastic eating experience.

Summary:  This was only my second cruise and I chose this ship as I have two children in their twenties who I thought would appreciate a more modern and active cruise. Ok it was only a weekend break, but to cut a long story short,for starters the bed seemed as if the sheets hadn't been changed, hair on pillows this was dealt with fairly quickly. Had a balcony and room was ok for three, the food wasn't that good in any of the restaurants. You had to queue every time for buffet or pizza and then they would offer only a slice at a time, so time consuming! The staff seemed grumpy and totally non interested which was really a shame, you felt as if you were bothering them each time. The entertainment was very good, but a lot of drunks lolling around and some in onesies and slippers! Would I return? No,not enough staff to cope with such huge amounts of customers,

Summary:  Cruised from Southampton to Canary islands on September 28th and I have to say checking in was so easy and simple. We of course had to wait for our cabin to be made ready, which is only to be expected. The food, service, was second to none. The shows were fantastic, the gift ok a bit strange but ok, as for Kevin Kennedy as quite a few commented paid for doing next to nothing. However the shows as I saw were fantastic, the comedians all except one were brilliant and so funny. The 270 lounge was out of this world totally awesome, that's all I can say.....as I said the crew were all excellent I still have a smile on my face as" Dr Lovegood" came round with his trolley asking medicine anyone for their medicine, mine was Corona......good medicine. Anyone wants a fun ship on a fun cruise line with great food and great service and will be wanting to get back on there again and again, it must be Royal Carribean.....I have been on a number of cruise ships and cruise lines and this is the best by far...

Summary:  I went on the Italian Mediterranean cruise on this ship with my grandson in July. It was our 1st cruise and we had a fantastic time, there was so much to do on board. The iFly is great, and easier than you think, the staff are so unfailingly nice, you couldn't pay people enough in England to be as nice as the staff were on this ship. The food is out of this world, and so much of it. Book excursions prior to bording. In a storm force 10 one night the ship rode beautifully. All in all, a lovely ship, good staff, an unforgettable experience.

Summary:  Fab ship and very hi-tec but didn't like the self flushing toilets and some of the attitude from some staff left something to be desired. Customer services and some of the other parts of the ship were under staff. Overall i had a most enjoyable time and it was nice to see that the disabled were well catered for both on and off the ship.

Summary:  We spent 12 days on this ship. Our cabin, forward on deck 8, was spacious and comfortable. The shower room was standard size but big enough to dry yourself off and of a good quality. This ship is big! The layout is much the same as others in RCC fleet, though different to the likes of Liberty & Independence. This has more of a hotel lobby feeling to it rather than the others with their street style promenade. Lots to do on board and plenty for the kids of all ages! The sea plex, which is where the bumper cars, basket ball courts etc are situated, is well designed. The dining / entertainment area called Two70, was my favourite place day or night. The floor to ceiling window that is the width of the whole ship is impressive, especially when the whole thing is changed into a 12k HD video screen! My only disappointment, and its only a minor one, was the absence of the Viking bar and the grandiose dinning areas. These have been replaced with separate restaurants and bars; American Icon, Silk, Chic, The Grande and bars Bolleros and Vintages. For me they just aren't as special or impressive. But this is a totally different ship and my opinion only based on my preference. Regardless of the design and layout you will not be disappointed with what RCC and the Anthem of the Seas, have to offer and deliver. As usual it is of a high standard and does not fail to deliver the WOW factor. As for the entertainment; WOW!!
